A joiner who has a passion for art has opened his first exhibition - in a Carlisle pub.
As a youngster Colin Beck gave up art, because his father told him to get a trade.
He became a joiner but took up his hobby again about seven years ago.
Speaking to ITV Border, Colin explained that his paintings are simply the expression of his thoughts and feelings.
